UK power emissions falling faster than anywhere else

Greenhouse gas emissions from the UK’s power generation sector are falling faster than anywhere else in the world, reports Business Green.

A study by Imperial College London indicates that, in the last decade, emissions from the sector dropped by about two thirds.

"In the past decade, we've seen unprecedented changes in Britain's power system, which has transformed at a speed never seen before," said Imperial College London's Dr Iain Staffell, the study's lead author.

"If this pace of change can be maintained, renewables could provide more than half Britain's electricity by the end of this decade and the power system could be practically carbon free."
